Lehman Brothers notes buyers classified as having low to medium risk would get money plus interest.
DBS Hong Kong, a unit of Singapore's DBS Group Holdings, will pay out a combined HK$651 million to some buyers of Lehman Brothers constellation notes, the territory's financial regulator said.
Customers classified by the bank as having a low to medium risk profile would receive their money returned plus interest that would have been payable had it been placed in a fixed-term deposit, Hong Kong's Securities and Futures Commission said in a statement.
Investors in Singapore, Hong Kong and Indonesia who bought the product had lost their money after the U.S. investment bank Lehman Brothers went under in 2008 according to a report in Reuters.
The constellation notes are credit-linked notes related to the collapsed U.S. bank.
